VCDebugSettings.Command Property 

If Remote specifies local debugging and Attach is false, the Command property specifies the executable file to start when you invoke the debugger. If Attach is true and Remote specifies remote debugging, the Command property specifies the process to which the debug process should be attached when you invoke the debugger.

Namespace: Microsoft.VisualStudio.VCProjectEngine
Assembly: Microsoft.VisualStudio.VCProjectEngine (in microsoft.visualstudio.vcprojectengine.dll)

string Command { get; set; }
/** @property */
String get_Command ()

/** @property */
void set_Command (/** @attribute InAttribute() */ String Val)

function get Command () : String

function set Command (Val : String)

Property Value

Either the executable file to start when the debugger is invoked, or the process to which the debug process should be attached to.

See Changing Project Settings for a Debug Configuration for more information. See Samples for Project Model Extensibility for information on how to compile and run this sample.

The following example modifies the Command property in the integrated development environment (IDE):

' add reference to Microsoft.VisualStudio.VCProjectEngine
Imports EnvDTE
Imports Microsoft.VisualStudio.VCProjectEngine

Public Module Module1
    Sub Test()
        Dim mystring As String
        Dim prj As VCProject
        Dim cfgs, tools As IVCCollection
        Dim cfg As VCConfiguration
        Dim tool As VCDebugSettings
        prj = DTE.Solution.Projects.Item(1).Object
        cfgs = prj.Configurations
        cfg = cfgs.Item(1)
        tool = cfg.DebugSettings
        tool.Command = "test.exe"
    End Sub
End Module
